Joe joined Associated Architects in 2010, becoming a Senior Associate in 2019.
As an integral part of Director Warren Jukes’ team, during his time at AA Joe has developed a range of innovative and high quality schemes for many of the Midlands’ key universities and FE providers. He has 10 years of continuous project experience in the education sector, delivering new build, refurbishment, and masterplanning projects of many building types and scales for a variety of institutions, earning him an excellent understanding of best practice in the design and delivery of such facilities. Joe has also led projects in the infrastructure sector and the wider education sector, most notably a number of UTCs.
At present, he is leading the first phase of the Molecular Sciences scheme for the University of Birmingham, as well as the National Brownfield Institute on the site of the former Springfield Brewery in Wolverhampton. The NBI project itself overcomes many of that challenges faced by the sites the building’s users examine as part of their research. Aiming to act as a live case study, the building utilises new and innovative off site construction methods that are of particular relevance to brownfield sites where possible for their ongoing ‘demonstrator’ potential.
His exemplary work at the College Court Conference Centre for the University of Leicester earned accolades in the RIBA Awards, RICS Awards and the Architect’s Journal Retrofit Awards. He has subsequently used his expertise to deliver the New Library and Student Services Centre at Royal Holloway, University of London. Designed using Passivhaus principles and set within a sensitive historic campus, the new £50m building also provides specialist exhibition and archive facilities. In addition, Joe has led projects in the infrastructure sector and the wider education sector, most notably a number of UTCs.
